Southern Sky.

Hi Gang,
I've never been so far south as to see the stars of the southern sky. Has anyone been far enough to see the southern cross or the Magellanic Clouds? If so how did you find it?

Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann

Fragment B has brightened considerably over the past few days. Here are a couple of shots taken over the past couple of days.

M45 and Moon - comments please

Dear All,

I took the attached image of the moon and M45 last night at 1953hrs using my digital SLR and 70-200 zoom lens. I ve adjusted the image in photoshop by using 'auto levels' only. What I would like to know is have I recorded only the moon and M45 or are some of the 'stars' hot pixels from the camera. From viewing the image at 300% I THINK I've got only stars. Exposure ...

Weird shadow effects during solar eclipse

Hi everyone,

I'm gradually publishing my images from Turkey and have put up some pictures ( I got of the crazy shadow effects that a solar eclipse brings. There's a nice one (I think) demonstrating the blurred and straight edges caused by a crescent Sun.
